. in america we think a lot about south asia. and we now call it afpac. fixated on stabilizing afghanistan, washington seems to be relying more and more heavily on pakistan to tackle the taliban problem. in doing so, more disushingly, washington seems to be adopting the world view of the pakistani army, an army that created the taliban and despite $10 billion of aid from the united states, has taken no serious steps to dismantle it. pakistan's long-standing position has been that it has a right to see a pro-pakistani government in afghanistan. the respected expert harrison noted that in an interview him in 1988, pakistan's president demanded "a regime to our liking in kabul." last year a pakistani general told the director of the cia, quote, that pakistan has to support the taliban in afghanistan otherwise india will rein. and now general stan mcchrystal has echoed the pakistani line by increasing indian influence to afghanistan is likely to exacerbate. pakistan and afghanistan here in trouble. but dysfunctional small states don't create opportunities for political stability and world orde
one of the unique advantages that america has which is the fact that we are able to develop capital and credit in a way that allows people who want to go out and take risks and create jobs to get that capital and credit. that's something that no other nation has yet been able to replicate at the levels that we have been able to do it as a nation. and we have to be careful that responding to a dries sis which had a lot of underlying causes, that we don't fundamentally harm that unique advantage that america has. and so i guess that's how i come at this. so let's look at the causes that cause this crisis. we were all there on the front line when it collapsed on us. primarily it was real estate. it was a real estate bubble. now, i've been through three of these in my professional experien experience, once as a bank attorney for a small bank in new hampshire, once as governor of new hampshire when five of my seven largest banks failed and this time. in p every instance a real estate bubble is a function of the fact that there's a disconnect between underwriting and responsibility. loans

minds and america produced in the 1960s. nixon was on the national ticket five times, and won four out of the five times. the last i checked that's a pretty good batting average is. of course, john kennedy to come in the first and only roman catholic president in american history is a very interesting story in and of itself that it was an extraordinarily close election. kennedy won the election by just a tick or two over 100,000 votes out of the tens of millions that were cast. it was extraordinarily close. it was also really the first modern campaign when you think about pollsters, you think about use of media. you think of mass buying of advertising. and when you think about religion as a political force, you add all those together and many things we take for granted in our races today, began in mid- 1960 election. i think it's the beginning of modern political presidential campaigns. but it was also what i call the larva stage of the religious right in the united states. if you look at who the players were among conservative protestants in 1960, you see some of the leading lights of
